Charlie Bear here with notice of a cool new book. (It would be really cool if it was a new book about ME, but not this time.)

This book is from an author that Mom Peep really likes. She  likes him for a bunch of reasons:

1.   He’s a great writer. Mom has read tons of his books.

2.   He wrote about his CCI (Canine Companions for Independence) dog, Trixie, and that was an awesome book.

3.   Now he’s written about another CCI dog, Anna.

ASK ANNA: Advice for the Furry and Forlorn is Dean Koontz’s newest book. It’s 96 pages and is an 8″ x 8″ size (one of those odd dog-book sizes, huh?).

Dean Koontz’s dog Anna was raised by Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing assistance dogs. The Koontz family later adopted Anna, and 100% of what Dean receives from the sale of ASK ANNA will be donated to CCI.

Ask Anna

Blurbs about it from the Amazon site:

Dean Koontz is one of the world’s biggest selling authors. Anna Koontz is Dean’s remarkable dog who is poised to follow in her dad’s footsteps with her first advice book for canines. She will soon become canine columnist to the world!

With her superior intellect, sharp wit, a warm and fuzzy heart, Anna Koontz debuts her talent as an advice columnist in her seminal work ASK ANNA: ADVICE FOR THE FURRY AND FORLORN. Some of her best advice: take time daily for ball-chasing and belly rubs – the keys (along with sausages) to true canine joy.

Learn more about the problems that plague Anna’s clients and be inspired by how she counsels them. Also delight in Dean’s just slightly skewed perspective on the importance of dogs throughout history. Without their advice, we humans would be in even worse trouble than we are today. They’re heaven-sent (what is dog spelled backwards?!)

And just because us dogs like to be the BIG dog, here’s MY book (take that, Dean, Trixie, and Anna):



Wiggles and Woofs to you all, and to all of our furry friends,

    Very good info CB & mom Peeps. I sort of got confused when talking about Dean Koontz, I was thinking about Don Knots; lol, funny how one can get mixed up on names, isn’t it? Well I am trying to clean out some old emails & stuff(but not yours, CB.) I will sign off for this time. Wishing you and your Peeps a ‘Very Merry Christmas and A prosperous and Happy New Year 2015..’

    Warfs & Woofs to all;

      Don Knotts was one funny guy! Mom Peep used to laugh and laugh at his antics.
      We wish you all a very Merry Christmas too!

    How cool is that! Thanks so much, CB. That’s pretty big scoop. 🙂 I had no idea Dean Koontz had written something like this.

    Love it, BJ, this is so YOU–and Charlie Bear–to share news of another’s book. Love who you are. And the book looks great–though it won’t hold a candle to yours, Charlie. 🙂

    Hi Charlie Bear!

    My mom was really excited to know that Dean Koontz’s Anna has a book out. She really likes his books, too, and can’t wait to read this one. She remember’s reading about Trixie and seeing her picture on his book covers for many years. Gee, wonder if Kenzie and I will ever be famous enough to be on a book cover like you and Trixie? Oh well, even if we don’t, life is good just being a dog. Don’t you think so? Merry Christmas, Charlie Bear, to you and your Mom and Dad peeps. Talk to you next year!

    Your pal,

      Yup, life is truly good. Don’t we have the best Peeps ever? When you love a difficult dog, like me, there are lots of ups and downs. Just wait ’til the new year when I tell you about my new adventures.
      Woofs to you,
      Charlie Bear
